The ASMA-Peabody Museum of Salem exhibition will open as scheduled on May 15, with the jurying date set at January 21. A large catalog for that exhibition will be available in the spring. An Art Review Committee, chaired by Victor Mays, has been appointed to assist SEA HISTORY in maintaining its excellent coverage of marine art. The board has appointed an Executive Committee made up of Peter W . Rogers, Charles Raskob Robinson, James E. Mitchell, Victor Mays and Mark Greene and welcomes the following members to the board : William B. Mollard, Daniel Perepelitza, James V. Capua and Frank Handlen. The Society takes great pleasure in announcing the presentation of the first "Iron Man Awards" for distinguished service to marine art, to Adrian S. Hooper and Mark Greene. Membership in the Society is growing steadily and it is encouraging to report that good marine artists are continually emerging from all areas of the country. The annual meeting of the Society will be held at the Doral Inn, New York, on December 3 and will be followed by Tom Wells's noted Cape Horn film . Several members will also exhibit this fall at the Mystic Seaport New England show and at the annual Greenwich Workshop exhibition, Southport CT. A growing number of ASMA members are joining forces for small group shows, a very promising development. The Society newsletter provides a listing of members' exhibitions around the country. As always, lay membership in ASMA ($25.00) is encouraged (a good way to keep abreast of all exhibitions) . Contributions and correspondence may be sent to the Society c/ o NMHS, 2 Fulton St., Brooklyn NY 11201. PETER W. ROGERS
